Exclamation Conure suddenly dies after cockatiel PLEASE HELP

On around November 23, My cockatiel of at least 4 years old suddenly died. What she did was she spread her wings and tail feathers, lifted her head and breathed rather heavily. Within seconds she was dead. A time after I got a sun conure that was about 5 months old. Within 24 hours, he died the same way the cockatiel died, same position and everything. We checked for any sort of mold, didn't use any teflon cooking, and none of our carbon monoxide detectors went off. We are getting a necropsy done on the conure but I don't know how accurate they are. Is there any help on what it could have been? The conure wasn't purchased long after the death of the cockatiel. We originally thought the death of the cockatiel was due to maybe age since we didn't know her exact age, or if it was due to her diet being mostly seeds. But the conure had a correct diet according to his breeder and online care sheets.

Re: Conure suddenly dies after cockatiel PLEASE HELP

I'm sorry for your losses.
I don't have much experience with avian disease so unfortunately I can't help... but I'm just posting to say that I'm grateful that you are getting a necropsy done before buying another bird - It's showing us that you love your pets and you wouldn't allow this to happen again.

Please let us know when the results come in.

I will, I'm just so sad because both the cockatiel and the conure were the sweetest birds you could buy.

You sound like a very caring person - Your cockatiel and conure were the sweetest birds due to your actions around them. Never forget that.

Re: Conure suddenly dies after cockatiel PLEASE HELP

I am so sorry for the loss of your two companions.
I was wondering if you burn candles, have scent plug ins, or use cleaning agents in your home? I hope you get some answers from the necropsy, but from your description this does sound like something respiratory occurred.

Re: Conure suddenly dies after cockatiel PLEASE HELP

Did the conure take over the cockatiels cage? maybe something is up with the cage.

Re: Conure suddenly dies after cockatiel PLEASE HELP

I am very sorry to hear about your recent loss. Like Bobioden suggested, did you use the same cage? Best to sanitize it before any new bird is brought in. But yes it sounds like respiratory issue and there can be so many different stuffs. Good luck on finding the answers through necropsy, please keep us posted on the cause....

The cage we got for the conure was brand new, brand new food, dishes, perches, everything was new. And as for the candles, we never had any candles within the vicinity of the room

I'm very sorry for your losses.

You seem like you have a good idea of what are normal hazards for birds. I hope the necropsy reveals something.
